mar: can we do this without objection, colleagues? thank you. thank you. ms. miller, please call our last item. >> alisa miller: item no. of, ordinance amending the park code to repeal subsection(b) demonstrating or soliciting in certain city parks while other events are in progress. >> chair mar: supervisor wiener. >> supervisor wiener: thank you. this legislation repeals section 74.8(d) of the parks code which is outdated. this section applies to permitted events in seven parks in our city and provides specified locations where protests may occur. the implication being that they cannot occur anywhere else in the park. in the 30 years since the board of supervisors adopted this section, the configuration of these parks have changed, in some cases quite dramatically. as a result, this section is not only updated but it's difficult for park patrol and police officers to enforce it. for example, the section refers to a fountain in civic center that no longer exists, and it places a designated public assembly area for dolores park in the middle of the tennis courts, or what are now
